Fun company with great people

Ambassador (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Vente-Privee.com full-time for less than a year

ProsThe people are great and the weekly meetings seem to help keep everything in perspective. It helps to build a sense of community in the company.

ConsI'm not very of their business model. When you charge people and then they don't get what they order for a month, they tend to lose faith in your business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Smart, talented employees overworked and unsupported

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Vente-Privee.com full-time

Pros- Smart, dedicated, and hard-working co-workers
- Great friendly work environment that has the "start-up" vibe
- Transparent organization, for better and worse

Cons- Weak management team creates more problems than it solves
- Lack of support and misleading hiring promises leads to high employee turnover
- Employees constantly overworked and expected to go "above and beyond" with little recognition or fair compensation

Advice to Senior Management- Show that you care about the well-being of your employees who work hard by taking some of their suggestions
- Do something to stem the low morale and employee turnover

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Learning Experience

Digital Factory (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Vente-Privee.com full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat Environment
Good & Smart people

ConsInexperienced management for the company sector
The company tried too hard to have the start-up environment and the experienced company knowledge which lost focus and leadership on company results

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more hands-on as it is a start up
Listen to its employees
Do not hire over qualified people
Do not promise growth in career path in one year. If people are saying yes to a job because HR said they can change positions in one year, then this person is not saying yes for the right reason

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Viable business model but will be operationally run into the ground

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Vente-Privee.com full-time

ProsCool looking office, that's about it.

ConsOne by one, the most intelligent, hardworking people at Vente-Privee USA are being replaced by employees from the French counterpart. The sales team is grossly overpaid relative to the amount of work put in, and the managers of this team have not a clue as to how to manage people. As a whole, with the exception of two or three managers, Vente-Privee USA is extremely disorganized and has its priorities way out of order; too much of an emphasis on culture and not enough on performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementMicromanaging is dangerous, especially when your subordinates already don't respect you as a manager. Replace the sales team managers as they add no value whatsoever.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
